Bite Size Apple Fritters

Donut Shop Apple Fritters

I got a bloglift! How do you like it?

The other day I was browsing Pinterest, when I came across these mini apple fritters. These have always been my favorite. Every time we go to the donut store I beg the owners to let me be an apprentice for a day. I am denied every time! Pffffh. I now have an awesome recipe that I can make in the comfort of my own home, and can make a dozen for the price of one!

Bite Size Apple Fritters


    Homemade Apple Fritters Recipe
  • 1 heaping cup All Purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • Dash salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. All Spice (or just nutmeg)
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 T. butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup milk + plus more if needed
  • 1 – 1 1/2 cups chopped apple
  • Oil for frying
  • Milk and powdered sugar glaze for dipping or just powdered sugar for dusting
  • (About 1 cup pwd. sugar + 1 T. milk or more)


  1. This wonderful recipe is from

  3. In a medium sized bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together and form a well. In separate bowl, mix all the wet ingredients together. Pour wet ingredients into the dry well, and mix. Ideally, the mixture should resemble the consistency of a light cake mix.  Gently fold in the apple pieces.
  4. Heat your oil to 365 degrees Fahrenheit. To test the oil without a thermometer, drop a tiny piece of the batter into the oil. If it floats, the oil should be ready. But keep in mind that the fritters come out better when using a thermometer.
  5. Using a cookie scoop or a spoon, drop batter into the oil. Do not crowd the pan. Watch the balls carefully and gently turn when the underside turns golden brown. I cooked mine for about 1 minute on each side (with an electric stove).
  6. Cool on a paper towel an dip into sugar glaze. Enjoy immediately!

  1. And I like your new look! I can’t wait to make these little devils! Thanks!

  2. What kind of frying receptacle do you use? Frying can be unnerving for me because of the amount of oil and I try to use a deep pot

    Your pictures are great and they look yummy :)
